Harvest Fence Pop Stand

Good morning friends

Karen Burniston showed the Designer Challenge Team a Christmas Card she was going to teach at the Collins show ... and it totally inspired me to make this Harvest Fence Pop Stand card. You can see  Karen's card on here blog HERE.

I used one of the Merry & Bright clear stamps on the front, stamping it on the banner that comes with the Merry Christmas Pop-Up Card.


The card opens completely flat and shows off this pretty pumpkin patterned paper with a stand-up fence in the centre. So cool!


I used the silhouette pumpkin from an ECD die set, adding copper pencil crayon to the veins of pumpkin. The veins emboss when you die cut, but I wanted them to stand out a little more and I didn't want to use the overlay die that comes with the set. The fence was shaded with PanPastels before assembling. Love how it looks like real wood with the woodgrain embossing feature.


The Barn Pop Stand solid image makes a great label, and I added some die cut leaves with the pitchfork from the Hay There Pop Stand set. Another ECD pumpkin is on the right, also coloured with PanPastels and shaded with a copper pencil crayon.


Here is a side view of the fence Pop-Stand. Some of the Designer Challenge team decorate both side of the fence so no matter how you look at the card you get a nice view. I tend to decorate the front side only.


The cool thing about using a Pop Stand vs a Pop-Up, is that you don't also need a backing card. The Pop Stand 'holes' are perfect for threading a ribbon through which disguises them nicely.
